The Masons’ Charitable Trust Supports New Landmark Project In Dorset
Written by Past Master - Bill Gloyn.
The support of the Masons' Company Charitable Trust was publicly and warmly acknowledged when the Memory Stones project was formally opened on Wednesday 21st June 2017.
An interpretation of Portland's history and unique contribution to the built environment, the project is the brainchild of Freemen Hannah Sofaer and Paul Crabtree, directors of the Portland Sculpture and Quarry
Consisting of a series of large stones, placed in an arc, the site may be found at the entrance to the Tout Quarry at the top of the hill when approaching the Isle of Portland. Disused for many decades, the quarry is now a sculpture park containing work by many distinguished artists, including Sir Antony Gormley and other Royal Academicians.
